a week of school left

good thing i mowed the lawn last night. now it’s wed. morning and it’s raining again. we had a wicked rain on sunday just after we finished cycling the mcc bike the interlake cyclathon — 200kms. and now it’s raining again. it’s days like this, when i get up early and sit at my computer with my first cup of coffee and look out the front window of my house — and it’s all gray outside, the driveway’s washed clean by the rain, sheryl crow is singing sort of country music on my itunes, and i think to myself, this must be what retirement will be like. ahhh. and one week from today exams begin, and there will be no more lessons to teach until next fall. this will be a good day.
